Language Geek and Educator

I have 19+ years experience building software products in Java, Ruby and Javascript since 2001. I started my professional career with building GUIs in Java Swing for government projects, in Australia, and then transitioned myself to web development when I found Ruby on Rails in 2005. In 2006 I got an opportunity to work with Obie Fernandez and Zed Shaw on a project called Madmimi (a GoDaddy company).

Since 2021 I am transitioning myself to more education and Javascript-ish world (VueJS in particular), Blockchain, and other programming languages such as Go and Rust. On design end with TailwindCSS I have completely forgotten how to write custom styles in my HTML.

I educate [full-time] school, college, and uni students at Free Tech Education on various software technologies and frameworks such as Rails, VueJS, TailwindCSS, Go, Rust, Ethereum Blockchain, etc helping them become the early adopters of these technologies hence building their careers for future.
